A conservative group that's been running radio and TV ads in favor of the governor's budget-repair bill plans a statewide bus tour starting today.
Americans For Prosperity, gets a lot of money from the Koch family, the same family that gave Scott Walker thousands of dollars in campaign cash last year. The free-market group says Walker is standing up against out of control state spending.
AFP-Wisconsin director Matt Seaholm says many backers of Walker haven't been able to come to Madison to demonstrate their support. He says a bus tour that plans stops in 10 cities over the next four days will take the message to the people, with local supporters giving speeches along the way.
Seaholm says he hopes any counter-demonstrators that show up are civil. The tour begins today in Kenosha and ends Sunday in Madison.
